Tiengong Arctic Weather

Main Page < Systems < Alpha Centauri < Rigil Kentaurus < Tiengong < Tiengong Weather Tables

Arctic climate prevails in latitudes from 90 degrees (the north or south poles) to 61 degrees in the cool season an 71 degrees in the warm season. The arctic is cold. Temperatures can rise to tolerable condition in the height of the warm season, but usual remain so frigid that the area is essentially uninhabitable, except by those outfitted for survival in deep freeze, and creatures adapted to this kind of climate velocity (15-20 mph) except during storms. However, even a light breeze can make a dramatic difference in effective temperature when it is bitterly cold to begin with (see Wind Chill).

A phenomenon unique to the arctic is the ‘midnight sun’ which occurs during the warm season. Because of the axial tilt of Tiengong, there is a period of time when the arctic zone is in continual daylight. There is also a point during the cool season where there is a period of constant twilight. At 90 degrees latitude, the variation is daylight is total: there is no daylight at all for a portion of the year, and no nighttime at the opposite point of the calendar.

Procedure

Check for daily weather changes using the Day-To-Day Change Table, and any other related tables that may come up. Record the indicated weather for the day in question.

Note:

The temperature figures for desert assume an elevation of sea level, for plains and forest, 500 feet, for hills, 2000 feet, and for mountains, 4000 feet. If these terrain types exist at different elevations, subtract 3 degrees from the temperature figures for every increase of 1000 feet (or add 3 degrees for every decrease of 1000 feet) if a more accurate temperature determination is desired.
